The Inauguration 

of Our New 


On September 30, 1983, Jack 
Carter Phillips was inaugu- 
rated as the fifteenth presi- 
dent of Union College. 

Over 60 guests, presidents of colleges and uni- and into the Conway Boatman Chapel. The 

versifies or their respresentatives, led off the Board of Trustees, officers of the college, and 

colorful academic procession, down the walk the faculty followed, 
from Centennial Hall to College Street (above) 

President Emeritus Mah- 
lon Miller passes on the 
medallion with the seal of 
the college to our new 
president. The president 
wears it with his academic 
regalia on ceremonial occa- 

President Phillips delivers his inaugural 
address, the climax of the ceremonies, 
from the pulpit of the Conway Boatman 

The Chief Marshall of the academic pro- 
cession, Registrar Edwin LeMaster, and 
Vice President for Academic Affairs 
Dwight Stewart look smilingly on as 
Douglas Lunsford, who headed the aca- 
demic procession bearing the Centennial 
Flag, exchanges affectionate congratula- 
tions with President Phillips following 
the ceremonies.

The Inauguration Was A Time 
For Smiles 

Visiting dignitaries enjoyed a buffet brunch in the 
gymansium before the inaugural ceremonies. 

Some facts 
about the Inauguration 

Presidents and delegates from 61 col- 
leges and universities and 9 representa- 
tives from learned societies and assoca- 
tions attended the ceremonies. 

Besides flag bearer Douglas Lunsford, 
other students served as marshalls in the 
academic procession: Joe Karr, Donald 
"Happy" Mobelini, Michael Taylor, and 
Mathew Kompancaril. 

Campus Minister Quentin Scholtz smiles with the new president. 


The President's Lady, 
Mrs. Juanita Phillips, 
smilingly poses here 
with daughter Annette. 
The president's wife 
plays an important role 
in the life of the college, 
serving as its official 
hostess and lending 
much time and effort to 
a variety of projects in 
its behalf. 

Serenely happy smiles — and a bit of hand- 
holding — are typical of the college's new 
president and his wife. They are shown here at 
the reception in the Student Center following 
the ceremonies in the Conway Boatman Chap- 

. . . And more facts 

Mayor Charles Buchanan proclaimed Septem- 
ber 30, 1983, the day of the inauguration, as 
"Jack and Juanita Phillips Day" in Barbour- 

During the ceremonies, Dr. Robert L. Ander- 
son, minister of Barbourville's First Methodist 
Church and a trustee of the college read the 
Scripture passages. Dr. Douglas L. Blair, 
Chairman of the College's Board of Trustees, 
presided at the ceremonies. 

The Union College Singers, under Dr. Joe Tar- 
ry, sang the anthem "Praise the Lord" by 
George Frederick Handel. 


The spectacular picture of the flaring of 
Union College's own new gas well was 
taken about 6 a.m. one morning in early 
November, 1983, shortly after drilling 
begun on October 19 and ending on Oc- 
tober 26, had struck natural gas in two 
rock formations over 2,000 feet down. 

Shortly after assuming office, President 
Phillips appointed an energy committee 
after Mr. Harold Jones, a Barbourville 
businessman, suggested that it might be 
possible to strike gas on college proper- 
ty. Mr. Jones, as chairman, worked with 
Dr. Deril Mays, Professor of Psycholo- 
gy, Mr. Samuel Davies, a trustee, and 
Mr. Walter Powell, Jr., President of our 
Alumni Association. The president im- 
mediately felt that the advantages 
outweighed the risks. Dr. Mays had al- 
ready done considerable ground work on 
the project. 

More than $50,000 in cash contributions 
and gifts-in-kind, all from citizens of the 
Barbourville area, financed the project. 
Alpha Gas, Wiser Oil, Allegheny Nucle- 
ar Surveys, Argo Energy Co., and Samar, 
who supplied the drilling rig, all helped 
with bringing the well in. 

With $141,000 budgeted for gas in the 
1983-84 fiscal year, with a line run from 
the well just south of College Park to the 
campus by Delta Natural Gas Co., early 
in 1984 the college was already begin- 
ning to realize substantial savings.

gas well casts its light on (left to right)

Tension mounted as the drilling rig (right) bore downward into the 
earth. Harold Jones and Dr. Deril Mays (above) were frequently on 
hand to observe progress. Mr. Jones proposed to President Phillips that 
a gas well on Union College property might be feasible, and Dr. Mays 
contributed much to the project from his experience in drillin^oil 
wells in the Barbourville area. 

Wiser Oil Co. officials (below) measure the flow of gas from 
the well as Marshall Potter, Union's Director of Buildings and 
Grounds (left), and Edward Black, Vice President for Adminis- 
tration (center) look on in the background. Cecil Wilson (right), 
Union College trustee, expresses the concern everyone felt at 
this crucial moment. The gas was there, however! 

Wiser Oil employees put a control device 
on the outlet of the well as Milton Town- 
send and Walter Powell look on. 

In August 

The Weather 

Was Warm . . . 

President and Mrs. Phillips entertained 
entering freshmen at Baldwin Place dur- 
ing orientation. Suzanne Owens and 
Tammie Shepherd smile for the camera 
while Doug Lunsford, an orientation 
counselor, appears to have designs on 
President Jack Phillips's punch. 

Doug Lunsford watches 
in the background, 
Chuck Wood sits this 
one out, and Mike 
Smith shows his form at 
balloon bobbling as Jill 
Garner and Jennifer 
Van Sickle keep an eye 
on the proceedings. 

Lighthouse Singers Mindy Starr, Don 
Gilbert, and Ann Naglee have a friendly 
tussle over who gets in the swim first at a 
retreat at Pine Mountain State Resort 
Park at the beginning of the fall semes- 

... But 

In January 
Came Snow 

The snow did not stop the active 
men in Stevenson Hall, however. 

(At left) Alvin Bailey moves to 
intercept Tim Gurran who is 
carrying the ball as the snow 
falls with the same abandon the 
players seem to have. 

(Below) Several of the men began 
to roll up a snowball on the front 
campus that grew bigger and 
bigger as they toiled to push it 
up in the direction of Centennial 
Hall. They finally managed to 
push it into the dormitory quad- 
rangle, and what with one thing 
and another, they added to it un- 
til the monster in the large pho- 
tograph was the result. The 
small picture shows the work in 
progress with Wally Eccleston, 
Mike Miller, Mosheer Abdel- 
Galil, Jason Wick, and master 
builder Ted Abner who is 
sculpting the upper part of the 
creation. In the large photo- 
graph, Roby Stamper, one of the 
original snowballers is second 
from left.

The Gangs Are All Here 

The Smith Gang: Four 
members of the A.J.

At any college, there are always groups of students 
who have some common interest or who have some 
distinguishing factor that identifies them as a 
"gang." Those on these pages are not exactly 
"gangs," but they do share interests or some link 
that sets them apart as a group.

each summer.

piano in the chapel as part of 
the annual ceremony during 
which the chapel windows are 
decorated for the Yuletide. 

There Was Music 

Tom Bledsoe and Rich Kirby (above) under the 
auspices of the Appalachian Semester, enterained an 
appreciative audience with a program of old-time 
mountain music in the Student Center in November, 

Five faculty members (below) take a bow following 
their presentation of organ and vocal music, part of 
the observance of Martin Luther's 500th anniversary. 

Betty Stroud of the Music Department 
presented a recital of art songs and operatic 
arias in March, 1984. 

And Time For Fun 

Rickie Allen, dressed for the occasion, 
makes a personal purchase at the Daniel 
Boone Festival to satisfy the inner man.

Department demonstrates consumer 
economics as she attacks the business 
end of a hot dog. 

Susan Sprinkle clowns a bit and gets an answering grin from a child at the Crippled 
Children's Services at the Hearing Center Building. Susan is among those students who 
volunteer for such good services as part of their commitment to Union's C.R.O.S.S., the 
Campus Registry of Sharing Services.

College life may seem to flow more or less smoothly along, with one happening 
as only a moment in time, but Union College students on these pages are 
caught by the camera in a moment in that flow of events, working, going to 
classes, hobnobbing in the Snack Bar, showing off their talent in a show or just 
having a good time with the exhuberance that all of us feel at times.

The 1983-1984 season was a rebuilding year 
for Union's soccer program. The small, but 
determined team showed constant im- 
provement from game to game throughout 
the season. Coach Metcalfe's comment was, 
"I believe our program was more structured 
and concentrated this year. Everyone 
learned a lot and more concentration on 
fundamentals will pay off in the future." 
Scott Plummer, goalie, and Chris Santarelli, 
fullback, were named All State Tournament 
Players, with Chris also named All State 
League Player and Union's Most Valuable 
Player. Darwin Winston, another fullback, 
was also an All State League Player. Bob 
Dunaway earned the title of Most Improved 
Player on the Union team. Union's young 
and energetic team rated third in the "B" 
Division in the KISA State Tournament. 

With a year of solid accomplishment be- 
hind it, the Union College soccer program 
should attain even better results in the com- 
ing year.

Back Row: Head Coach Bill Peterson, Jerry

Lunsford, Jimmy Crutcher, James Anderson, and 
Assistant Coach Jeff Price. 

The Union College Bulldogs in the 1983-1984 sea- 
son faced what our coaches considered the "tough- 
est schedule in the league." Coach Peterson's efforts 
to build a strong team paid off with the most con- 
ference wins in some years. One triumph was the 
defeat of the Cumberland College team which was 
ranked 9th in the country, their first defeat after 21 
straight wins. James Anderson led all colleges and 
universities in the State of Kentucky in points per 
game — 24.4, and in rebounds per game — 12.1. 

Anderson was also named to the first all-conference 
team and the all-district team. Coach Peterson said, 
"I feel like this season was definitely a step in the 
right direction to reach our goal, which is to be able 
to compete with the best teams in our class, inside 
or outside of Kentucky." With five starters return- 
ing for the 1984-1985 season, as Coach Peterson 
said, "With almost everyone returning and with the 
squad playing as well as they did as a team, things 
should continue to look up."

ing record per game. 

Seated: Lisa Taylor, Marilu Wilder, Regina Hub- 
bard, Lori Jolly, Lisa Johnson, and Manager Felicia 
B. Pembleton. 

The Lady Bulldogs finished a commendable season 
by winning the Kentucky Women's Intercollegiate 
Conference Championship. Individual players dis- 
tinguished themselves also. Regina Hubbard, for 
instance, scored her 1000th career point in a game 
against Pikeville College in the opening round of 
the Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference 
Tournament. In addition, she was named to the 
KWIC Tournament Team, the KIAC Team, and the 
All-District National Association of Intercollegiate 
Athletes Team in our District 32, placing 4th in the 
district in scoring. 

Back Row: Coach Karen Fishbaugh, Billie Cornett, 
Sherry Caudill, Jennifer VanSickle, Marquetta 
Burkhart, Pam Cox, Shelley Combs, Amy Harris, 
Tammie Perkins, and Manager Sherry Messer. 

Other Lady Bulldogs also make their mark in the 
1983-1984 season. Lisa Johnson led the KIAC in 
Assists. Sherry Caudill also placed on the KWIC 
Tournament Team, and Jennifer VanSickle tied the 
Union College records in rebounds in one game 
with 15. Caudill also scored the most points per 
game against Campbellsville on December 10, 1983; 
she also made 20 out of 24 free throws in the same 
game. Lisa Johnson is credited with a total of 10 
assists in games against Lincoln Memorial Univer- 
sity and Clinch Valley College. Besides her tying 
the Union College record in rebounds with 15, she 
went on to get 17 in January in a game against Alice 
Lloyd College.

The Lady Bulldogs Softball Team 
had a successful 12-7 season, due 
largely to the team's depth and con- 
sistent defensive play. Lisa John- 
son in left field, Felicia Pembleton, 
Lori Jolly, and Patty Vavrick, field- 
ers, all did an outstanding job in 
their positions. Lori Brockman dis- 
tinguished herself at third base. 
The women also played in both the 
Kentucky Women's Intercollegiate 
Conference and the Kentucky In- 
tercollegiate Athletic Conference

Root, Jeff Allie, Jimmy Crutcher, Alan Byrd, Tim 
Gurren, Ron Yanich, John Meehan, Kevin Solley, 
and Assistant Coach Miles Estes. 




Even though Coach Larry Inkster was away from 
campus on sabbatical leave, the team approached 
the season with optimism. Interim Coach Dwayne 
Peters, Union College graduate and former Varsity 
player, with the help of his assistant, student Miles 
Estes, had many players this year with the exper- 
ience of a conference win the season before. For 
various reasons, however, the 1984 team got off to a 
slow start, losing games on the annual Alabama 

trip, always a matter of facing opponents with 
stronger teams. By mid-season, the record of wins 
and losses leveled off, but not, unofrtunately, in 
time to add up to a winning season. Union's players 
showed good form, as the pictures above and on the 
page at right will testify. Top of facing page: Catch- 
er Alvin Bailey hurls one to catch an opponent at 
second base. Bottom: Jeff Hensley and Randy Jack- 
son swing their bats.

This was the first year of competitive 
swimming for many on our team, but 
they trained hard and kept up their en- 
thusiasm during the whole season. With 
only two seniors on this year's team, 
Coach Metcalfe has hopes for an even 
better season next year since he will not 
only have seasoned swimmers returning 
but also looks forward to new recruits 
for the coming season. This season the 
team placed fifth in the Kentucky Inter- 
collegiate Swimming Conference cham- 
pionship competition.

The coach took over this 
spring after Allan Green, who 
usually works with the tennis 
team, was injured in an auto- 
mobile accident. Metcalfe 
sees a good team forming for 
next year since this year's 
crew included five freshmen 
who will be sharpening their 
play for next go-round.

Student Senate 

The Student Senate is the democratic 
voice of the student body. The organiza- 
tion thrives on leadership, character and 
a sense of school spirit and participation 
from its members. One of the main pro- 
jects for the group was helping overturn 
the attendance policy. The Student Sen- 
ate sponsored a campus picnic at Dr. 
Thomas Walker Park and organized the 
student body and the administration of 
the college in a question and answer fo- 
rum in the Chapel.

And The Night 


Both faculty and students 
worked on the production, ei- 
ther as actors and singers or 
as members of the vital back- 
stage crew. (Right) Amahl's 
Mother (Betty Stroud) and her 
crippled son (Lowell Ebersole

dance to entertain the three 
Kings. Balthazar (Christopher 
Burt) and Kaspar (Herbert 
Adams) look on with Amahl 
and his mother in the back- 

Steve Sproles and his techni- 
cal crew worked long hours, 
turning the chapel into a the- 
atre complete with stage, set- 
ting and lights. The produc- 
tion played to audiences total- 
ing almost 500 people. 

In early December, 1983, the college presented 
"Amahl and the Night Visitors," a Christmas 
light opera by Gian Carlo Menotti, as part of 
the Christmas Festival which is fast becoming 
a tradition at Union College. 

Above: Whitney Green cuts a caper in the 
dance. Top Right: As Balthazar, Kaspar and 
Melchior (Joe Tarry) sleep, the Mother tries 
to steal the Kings' gold, but is nabbed by 
the Page (Richard Lockett). Right: Amahl 
wishes to send his crutch he made himself 
to the Child as a gift, and his sacrifice is 
rewarded by a miracle: he can walk again. 
Here he has handed his crutch to Kaspar. 
Below: Amahl will go with the Kings, and 
he and the Mother watch as the Page strug- 
gles to get his burdens together, including a 
live parrot. His unraveling loin cloth was 
not part of the planned action. 

The Union College singers performed as the 
Chorus of Shepherds in "Amahl." Students 
working backstage included Cathy Pesce, who 
was Assistant to the Director, Jason LeMay, 
Daugh Sizemore, Tracy Meadows, Cotha Van 
Doran who was Costume Mistress, D.J. 
McMullin, Tammie Shepherd, Audrey White, 
Cheryl Cole, Bonetta Hale, Susan Sprinkle, 
and Maureen O'Hara. Barbara Timm was re- 
hearsal accompanist. Joe Tarry produced the 
opera, Allan Green conducted the 20-piece or- 
chestra, and Lester Woody staged the musical

tion, and Cotha Van Doren. 

The Glass Menagerie 

Tennessee Williams' "The Glass Mena- 
gerie" was the second production of the 
season at Union. It was an effective per- 
formance of the modern theater classic, 
showing how Laura, the introverted 
daughter of a mother still living in a 
dream-like past, almost emerges from 
her world centered on her collection of 
glass animals, only to be driven back 
into it by bitter disappointment. 

The cast of "The Glass Menagerie": 
Tom, Whitney Green; Amanda, the 
mother, D.J. McMullen, Laura, Cathy 
Pesce; Jim, Laura's unsuspecting love 
from high school days, Brian T. Wood- 
lee. Directed by David Davis, the pro- 
duction was designed by Cotha Van 
Doren who was also technical director. 
Maureen O'Hara was the stage manager, 
assisted by Susan Sprinkle. Darwin 
Winston was sound master for the show.

Special Olympics 

Each spring the Special Olympics 
are held on the college's athletic 
field. Sponsored by the local Junior 
Chamber of Commerce, many 
Union students participate in this 
event for the handicapped, acting 
as "huggers" that encourage those 
in the various events, cheer them 
on, and then give them praise and 
affection, whether they win or lose 
an event. 

Besides the athletic events — there 
are even races for those in wheel- 
chairs — food and other entertain- 
ment is also provided, like the two 
jolly clowns at right.

Besides performances in the Rector 
Little Theater, the show also per- 
formed at Corbin High School as 
one of the events in the Fine Arts 
Concert Series which brings cultur- 
al events to this area of Southeast- 
ern Kentucky. 

Tammie Shepherd, Maureen 
O'Hara, D.J. McMullen, Whitney 
Green, Cotha Van Doren, Audrey 
Fitzgerald, Tina Noonan, Steve 
Sproles, and Dallas Shields also 
contributed backstage. 

Matt and Luisa, separated by the "wall" — the The first act ends with a typical musical show tableau 

Mute's outstretched arms, have climbed up so they with Luisa and Matt up on their perches and Bellomy 

can see each other. Here they sing of their budding (Luisa's father) and Hucklebee (Matt's). 

Herb Adams as Bellomy and Bob Swanson as Hucklebee go into a lively song and dance routine. 

Music, Please!

Bottom left is Barbara Timm who accompanies most of the 
musical offerings at the college. She accompanies faculty mem- 
bers when they perform, rehearsals and performances of such 
musical events as "Amahl and the Nigh Visitors" and "The 
Fantasticks." Student talent shows are also part of the musical 
scene, and each spring faculty members and students combine 
their talents in the annual "Cabaret" variety show presented 
during Homecoming. Below, Allan Green, recovering from 
injuries suffered in an automobile accident, conducts the Stage 
Band from his wheelchair during the 1984 "Cabaret" perfor- 


Spring Formal 

The Holiday Inn at Harro- 
gate, Tennessee, was the 
scene of the 1984 Spring For- 
mal. Dinner, dancing until 1 
a.m., and a brief talk by Presi- 
dent Jack Phillips in between, 
made up a memorable 
evening. Some of the festivi- 
ties are shown here.
